With over a decade of experience utilizing digital media to tell engaging stories and establishing my client's online presence, I believe that mindful design leaves a lasting impression. Combining my professional experience with photography, website design, digital video, and print, I have a toolset capable of executing campaigns that elevate my customers' projects to help them flourish.

SERVICES + CAPABILITIES

Website Design + Development

I published my first website in 2003, when compatability between browsers required numerous workarounds and finessing. Tools have come a long way, but working with websites requires developers to continually adapt and learn on the fly. Whether it's a custom job designed from the ground up, or making a website look great on an established content management system, I'm well versed for the task.

Photography

Armed with a DSLR and 2 studio strobes, I can shoot everything from headshots and business tours to product photography.

Video Post-Production

Storytelling is powerful, and sometimes video is the best method. I have worked on documentary films, product trailers, digital archiving, and even antiquated physical media production, like DVD authoring. Remember those?

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Discoverability is essential. I'm happy to work with clients to get their projects set up on Google Console paired with meta tags and copywriting to improve their page rankings.

Digital Marketing

Email and social media doesn't scare me either. I can create templates that deliver an on-brand experience for customers to inboxes and handheld devices.

Restoration + CMS Transitioning

I've worked extensively with MySQL databases, common in most modern content management systems (CMS). Whether it's restoring a website from a database backup or website archive, transitioning to a new CMS, or leaving paid systems to serve static HTML websites free of overhead, I can help.
